    Save Our Anglo-Saxon Stone!

    Save our Anglo-Saxon stone!

    Part of an ancient Northamptonshire monument to England’s first female hermit is up for sale. Should it be allowed to leave Britain?



    At the time it seemed the ideal solution. For eight years, Nick Evered has had a piece of carved Anglo-Saxon stone in his sitting room (it came with the house). “It’s attractive,” he says, but not the sort of thing he would go out and buy; and he could do without the responsibility of looking after it, insuring it and showing it to the occasional visiting scholar. Selling it seemed a good idea. But when he handed the stone over to Bonhams in London – where it is due to be auctioned on Wednesday – he had no idea what a storm the Anglo-Saxon specialists would blow up.

    Keep it in England! I never understood why nations world wide allowed for their national treasures to be sold and put in foreign museums, if others want to see these things they should wait till they can travel to see them or wait till photos are published. I'm 100% for keeping all historical national pieces in the nations they originate from.

    In my view, a historical/archeological piece has a different vibe if it's seen in its original place than put in a museum abroad. Part of the "magic" of it is killed by moving it. I've a likely opinion about restoration work for historical pieces, but the difference is there is few choice about that because some materials are degradable and collapsible and they would disappear otherwise, but nevertheless altering it takes away the trace left by the original builders. I've to agree with keeping it in England.

    If you can't appreciate your heritage, then give it to me. I got an ideal spot for it in my room or in my backyard.

    The stone should remain in England and be in a place where the the public can view it. If another country wants to display it they can make a copy and display that with the history of it, so that others can learn about it.

    I don't like the idea of someone putting the stone in a privet collection where no one can view it and learn from it.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    Cool

    This is disgraceful!

    Our Government/Heritage groups should purchase it and keep it in a place of honour!

    Yet more evidence of how our culture and heritage is being wiped clean, our identity removed.

    Instead, we get ridiculous, non-specific, soulless and expesnive pieces of public "art" that mean nothing to us - yet paid for by the tax-payer.
